Other questions about "Bell"

Q: Take the bell with your left hand, and take it to near your left waist. does this sound natural?
A: Take the bell with your left hand, and move it near the left side of your waist.

I changed the second "take" to move because when I hear "take" I think of one of two things:
-The object was not in the person's hand but then they grabbed it. In other words, they took it.
-They're holding the object and they moved with it. Like, they walked with it, got in a car and drove with it, etc. In other words, they went to a new location while holding the object. Well, they just move it with their hands, but they don't go anywhere, I don't think of that as take.

So I think a word like "move" is better for your situation because it doesn't require the person to go to a new location.

Q: This bell has the best sound of many bells I had been finding long time. does this sound natural?
A: We can add a bit to the original sentence to make it grammatical.

But it's still fairly awkward. We can rephrase it, of course.

"Of all the bells I've found during my long search, this one has the best sound."
